thanks everyone for uploading your MOTD5 pics! I could not attend this year, but at least I got to see all these wonderful photos. Hopefully next year I'll attend.

Hey guys, just wanted to say what a great time I had. Even though I was the odd car out by far, you where all still very nice. Even put up with me blasting random crazy songs like Super Mario and Crazy frog. Just wanted to say you guys where all great and had a blast running the Dragon with all of you. I will post up what pictures I got at somepoint today.

Until those pictures, I never realized that Mellow Yellow is actually "Double Yellow" - as in the center line!

Pics and videos look great everyone! I wish I would have found this site a few weeks ago so I could have made it to the Dragon with you all. I frequent it on my motorcycle, but haven't made it there in the Mini yet. My wife and I are already making plans to attend this next year!

You're missing some. I forget which site, Killboy or Moonshine, but one of them has photo's of you riding shotgun in a blue R56 with yellow 69's on the side.

WOW Gabe! You're "profile'in" there! The pix almost make it look like there'll be sparks coming off those OZ's at any moment!

hmmmmm...

i honestly thought i would have taken more pics.:disbelief

anyway, here are a couple of stupid pics i took with my crappy camera. i can promise they will be niether entertaining nor interesting. they are very self centered and by "self" i mean the car. guess what? i suck.

right after my wreckless driving ticket and speed ditch jump, the Mini pooped the bed. so here we are fixin the pos in the parking lot of a truck stop. effin Unichip.


here is a boring *** shot of the New York crew takin a cig break somewhere. just plain awesome!


two fisted...nothin wrong with that.:tu:


my boy likes to tackles drunk rocks. he made it back to long island with his ish set up like this. over 700 miles. i love the rainbow bungees.:D


well, thats all for now. i have some ramen noodles callin me.

If you go to the Flickr groupe page (http://www.flickr.com/groups/motd2007/pool/page2/) you'll see a bunch more pics - we were at the 5 mile point on a big hairpin, for most of the parade - if you passed by there we probably have your picture...

Yes that would be BoBo my trunk monkey. Usually he rides shotgun as my rally monkey but i figured for the dragon i better use him to protect myself from the Dragon. Needless to say BoBo did a great job on protecting the car except for excessive tire wear And he also did the entire trip back home to Charlotte NC, then back to where im stationed up in Cape May NJ. BoBo needless to say got a little bit of fresh air

And Robbydee looks like u caught a picture of my nose ring haha thanks im stealin that one. I was asked to put them in the hoodscoop but i didnt have the heart to scratch my paint up.
